About Carrie

Carrie Higgins Making Lemonade Blog

Want to go from overwhelmed to in control? You’re in the right place.

I’m Carrie Higgins, a former teacher and school library media specialist with a passion for helping busy women streamline their home to create more time, space and peace at home.

My goal is to help you transform your home so it feels and functions the way you’ve always wanted, and put home tasks on autopilot so you have more time to do what you love. (And I’m guessing that’s not folding laundry, amiright?)

Why should you trust me? Because I’ve been an overwhelmed hot mess who would not seem to catch up, with chronic illness thrown into the mix. I was not born naturally organized, so I had to teach myself those skills. I’ve figured out systems and routines for streamlining our home life after years of trial and error, which means I’ve done the hard work for you.

Take a deep breath– we’ve got you!

I believe small steps towards organizing, decluttering, and planning will grow exponentially, and give you time to do more of what you love– and I will help you get there.

In addition to being chief lemon squeezer her on Making Lemonade, I’m the author of Organization Hacks: Over 350 Simple Solutions to Organize Your Home In No Time! I’m also the mom of two pretty fantastic kiddos and live in the Raleigh area of North Carolina. My ‘Why’ for streamlining my home life is so I can spend more time with my passions: family, traveling, reading, getting outside in nature (preferably near water), decorating my home, and being with friends.

PR & Press

I’ve been fortunate enough to be featured in publications such as The Good Life magazine, Storage Solutions, Women’s World magazine, Apartment Therapy, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and on BHG.com, CountryLiving.com, and CaryMagazine.com. I was also the keynote speaker at Be Well Philly, a large gathering of health and wellness minded women sponsored by Philadelphia Magazine. Our story (and sunroom) were featured in an episode of Rip & Renew on HGTV.

I’ve worked with many amazing, “pinch-me-is-this-real-life” brands including Ford Motors, Martha Stewart, Glidden, Michaels, Pixar, Disney, World Market and Serena & Lily (to name a few.)
